to listen to half of what steve said in his opening comments they would rehabilitate themselves quickly. i think there is going to be a civil war between the view of people like steve and the view of some on the hard right. and i thought up here i'm not going to say a challenging thing about governor romney or pour salt in any wounds. but a few hours ago governor romney did a conference call to thank some of his donors. and he said that the reason he lost was that the president had given gifts, his word gifts to young people in the form of student loans and student loan repayment process. gifts to the latino policy by saying dream act kids would not be deported over the coming years. gifts of healthcare. so that says fundamental misreading about what happened. i'll pour more salt in the wound. paul ryan said the reason we won is because we did well in urban areas. we won his hometown by 24 points and he lost it by ten and it's not an urban area. so it's disturbing within eighty days there is that think about that gift to young people, latinos. gifts of contraception to women. so if that's
correspondent for the hill, amy parnes. chief correspondent for mcclatchy newspaper steve selma. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> steve, why don't you head on up here? i'm going to begin with amy. i want to read you part of speaker boehner's op-ed on fiscal cliff negotiations. if we're serious about getting our economy moving again, solving our debt, and restoring prosperity for american families we need to repeal obama care and enact commonsense step by step reforms to start with lowering the cost of health care. would democrats consider putting any part of the president's signature health care legislation on the table to negotiate? >> no. it's just not going to happen. i mean you remember last year, democrats wouldn't -- refused to budge on this issue. they're not going to do it again. president obama's out there, all campaigns saying health care is law now. now that he's in office again for a second term, there's no way this happens. it didn't happen last time. it won't happen this time. >> so then, steve, i thought he said affordable health care act was the law of the land a couple wee
in congressman steve israel, a democrat from new york, and chair of the democratic congressional campaign committee. congressman, good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> u.n. representative cole sent a letter to president morsi asking him to refrain from giving hamas cover to intensify its attacks by allowing egyptian delegations to visit gaza. of course, morsi has been a major player in these truce negotiations. do you think he's sending a mixed message? >> well, he is sending a mixed message. you know, i hope that president morsi is able to play a constructive role. but when high-level delegations of egyptians go into gaza under the pretense of a cease-fire and then terrorist groups violate that cease fire, if israel were to defend itself and members of the delegation was tragically hurt in that attack, we do not want that to be used as a pretense to violate the egyptian/israeli peace treaty. one other thing on this, chris. look, there's a fundamental truth here. i was on the border of gaza and israel in august of 2005 when israel unilaterally and without any preconditions left gaza. a
president obama's former campaign manager david plouffe and steve schmidt talk about the 2012 election. both mr. playoff and mr. schmidt attended the university of delaware. >> welcome back to the national agenda program. i'm director for the center of political communication. this is the final program of the 2012 presidential election season. i'm very very pleased that all of you are here tonight and i know that's a tribute to our two guest speakers this evening. two years ago in the wake of the sha lacking president obama took in the midterm congressional elections, the architect of the president's 2008 victory david plouffe stood on this stage and predicted the electorate voting in 2012 would be more diverse and younger than it was just two years earlier. he talked then about the growing latino electorate and he predicted that the obama campaign in 2012 would have to take advantage of those demographic opportunities. plouffe also predicted on this stage that the american people in 2012 would have had enough of republicans who were like glenn beck, sara palin and rush limbaugh. we are just
if from our audience. i want to ask you to define something you've talked about. steve called it the conservative entertainment complex and you just called it the alternative universe. could you just briefly, what are you talking about here. what do you mean by an alternative universe? how would people in this room know they were living in an alternative universe? how would they be aware of that? >> it's not unique to this election or republican party. in 2004 many democrats believed he had a device on his shoulder so he would be given instructions during the debate. it's snanty. i think in our politics today both parties want to construct an image of their opponent that is not grounded in reaty. so the alternative universe. there are two. one is the romney campaign had an unrealistic view of what the electorate was going to be and that was one of the reasons they lost. certainly one of the reasons they went in the election confident. th wasn't an act. they thought they were going to win. but there is this view of barack obama. if you read and watch the conservative entertainm
can thank his stellar campaign team led by steve wolordson, the chairman of the national turkey federation and raised this beautiful bird at miller farm in harrisonburg, virginia. here's steve. and as always, if for some reason cobbler cannot fulfill his duties as the official white house turkey, gobbler will be waiting in the wings. from here, these two -- from here, these two lucky birds will be swept up in a whirlwind of fame and fortune that will ultimately leave them to mt. vernon where they spend their twilight years in the storied home of george washington and later today, michelle, malia, sasha and i taking not so lucky turkeys to a food bank here in washington, d.c. i want to thank jandyl farms in pennsylvania for donating those birds and like to ask every american to do what they can to help families who are in need of a real thanksgiving this year. tomorrow in the company of friends and loved ones, we will celebrate a uniquely american holiday and it's a chance for us to spend time with the people we care about and to give thanks for the blessings that we enjoy and to
of this attitude. and now they're just looking like a lost cause. joining me now is steve car kna krystal ball. why doesn't the gop look to chris christie assist a role model? he's the most popular person in their party right now? >> hopefully some in the gop do. you have to remember that a lot of people, a lot of folks in the republican party were very upset with chris christie for being so bipartisan, for -- for daring to compliment the president for his responsiveness in hurricane sandy, so there's still some upset there over that. you know, i think the other thing this points out, you were mentioning, chris christie underscoring how important bipartisanship and cooperation is to voters. the other thing i think it underscores is how effective government is important to voters. peel saw him doing a great job handling hurricane sandy and republicans for so long have been the party of obstructionism, of doing everything they can to keep government from working. that's the other message. people to want see a government that actually works. >> and a government that deals together in crisis, when some
will be scrutinized. you have to take the good with the bad. >> steve, what do you think the chances are we see the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president
they connect back with kris tie in the future. >> third on the to-do list, encourage steve king to stay in the house. he is a republican congressman from iowa and a tea party favorite. why urge him to stay in the house? >> he is a long time congressman from iowa but not -- in the senate race in the state is up in 2014 and he is thinking about running. the problem is as we saw in some of these recent senate elections some of the more conservative tea party candidates didn't do too well in the general election and if steve king ran, he might be a favorite in the party primary but he would have a hard time winning a general election appealing to a more broad base of voters and my colleague interviewed the governor of iowa, the republican governor, terry branstad who all but urged him to stay out of the senate race. >> and michele bachmann, another tea party favorite. >> it is amazing how michele bachmann's star shining so brightly in the presidential race now barely hung onto her house seat in the last election and she has been talked about as a possible senate challenger to al franken in
. the california voters have already spoken. today steve cohen, friend of our show, democrat from tennessee the first district there said this in "the washington post" in an op eth. we ask that your departments take no enforcement action against anyone who acts in compliance with the laws of colorado, washington and any other states that choose to regulate access to marijuana for medicinal or personal use. it is not just the elected officials or the liberals. you have people who were in law enforcement, law enforcement against prohibition. this is the leap letter. after 40 years of the drug war people no longer look upon law enforcement as heroes but as people to be feared. this is particularly true in poor neighborhoods and those people of color and -- and those of people of color and it impacts our ability to fight real crime. i'm joined with michael tricia, ana and we invite a criminal defense. sara, what happens? how does this work if there's a federal -- one federal law but the state makes up a law in colorado, the peop
are so far over i will argue they make the republican party look whacky and loony as steve schmitz said the other day. >> i'll tell you would -- go ahead, erin. >> i was going to say let's go back to dan's first comment. dan is a smart guy but that was naive of him to say. look, no one liked mitt romney to begin with. people don't like mitt romney now. he had a good first debate and so people thought, oh, maybe he actually has a chance. but the republican party never liked mitt romney 37 they never felt in love with him. he happened to be the establishment guy who was going to get the job. you look to the 2016 field of republican candidates and a lot of the electorate loves those people. like marco rubio. the electorate loves him. i'm sorry, i think dan was very off on those comments. >> chris, there's something deeper here we haven't talked about -- >> let's start with something simple. let's assume the republican party wants to rebuild and to be a four quarter offense, they want to compete in the northeast, southeast, midwest and the west. let's assume that. are you saying rubio is a
.s. congressman steve kg with how president obama's mother managed to convince us her son was born in hawaii, not in kenya. >> i looked into that before he was sworn in for the presidency. we went down into the library of congress and find a micro fish there of two newspapers only two newspapers in hawaii, each of them published the birth of barack obama. it would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of barack obama being born in hawaii. that doesn't mean there aren't some other explanations of how they might have announced that by telegram from ken yashgs the list goes on. >> by telegram? i guess she neglected to consider the mother naming her son barack husain obama might be a minor setback for her son's future run for theresidency of the united states. these people are loony. from mitt romney's 47% video to president obama's debate disaster in denver, the biggest turning points in the general election. you're watching "hardball" the place for politics. >>> i'm craig melvin. here's what's happening. protesters have taken to the streets of egypt after presi
] >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. in this edition, we look at three stories linked by the financial collapse of 2008. first, we examine a scam that's cost thousands of americans their homes. then we look into wall street's shadow market of credit default swaps. finally, a report on the perilous state of state finances. we begin with the foreclosure crisis. in the aftermath of the great recession, the huge number of foreclosed properties was a significant factor in weighing down the economy. many were stuck on the market for an unexpected reason: the banks couldn't find the ownership documents. as scott pelley first reported in april 2011, lenders wanting to evict people found that often, the legal documents behind the mortgages simply weren't there. caught in a jam of their own making, some companies appeared to have resorted to forgery to throw people down on their luck out of their homes. >> these folks on the street aren't homeless. they slept on the sidewalk because they want to keep their homes. facing foreclosure, they camped out to get in line to beg their ba
apple stores, retail stores that it took a long time and that steve jobs had a game plan. how did you convince the critics that they can wait for you to do what you want to do? >> i think people will wait. you got to remember for every sale of a stock another person buy as stock. we have a rotation in our investor base. our investors are looking at where we'll be down the road, not where we'll be this year. our vision is very clear. you know, we built out this really great mock up of the future jcp store in dallas. everybody gets to see that and excited about it and that will roll out next year. by back to school next year 40% of the store will be updated. a new home area, kid area. we'll be one of the most exciting stores in the mall in the next few months ahead. >> i can see you're enthusiasm, ron johnson. i'm hoping you're wearing a jc penney sweater. >> i am. this is our jcp sweater. it's actually -- think about this. it has cotton and cashmere and you can buy this today for $15. >> sounds like a deal. >> it's unbelievable. >> you're eliminating check out counters. how does that w
several years of decline. host: steve, northport, new york, a democrat. good morning. caller: my question is, as a potential home buyer, looking for houses on long island -- the problem is, how do i address the market? if the government is intervening in the market this much, how do i know what a fair price is? you know the government is just born to print the money to buy up the quantitative easing. they will put up $80 billion a month. what does that even mean? is that even relevant? it is frustrating in here on long island because i have heard several stories for three years, people not having paid a penny. guest: you raise a number of interesting issues. i do not think it has a whole lot to do with this $16 billion accounting move, but it is a plant in flat in the wrong moment when an agency has never required taxpayer information money and now suddenly needs it. with respect to the housing market, i think what you're seeing is more people are deciding whether it makes sense to buy a home based on long-term rather than can i buy this and flip it three years later for profit. if you're
thrilled. steve israel, the chairman of the dccc put out a fund-raising e-mail saying that paul ryan. they planned -- >> however good you think that is, it didn't work. what did he -- >> let me address that. he actually won the seniors vote. i think he has opened up the possibility both for president obama and congressional republicans, and you saw this in this poll that came out, center left organization, talking about people are open on entitlement reform in a way they haven't been in the past and i think romney/ryan broke through a little bit on that. other policy areas. look, republicans have to do a better job over the next couple years, particularly the republican think tank community, has to do a better job of thinking through about how to talk about middle class economics and go into the r and d business. i'm a supply sider, i'm as much of a believer in, you know, pro growth supply side economics as anybody, but the anchor for every one of our debates about our economic future, cannot simply be about marginal tax rates as much as i support keeping marginal tax rates low. we h
point that steve rattner made over the weekend which is all the guys and the women i know on wall street, none of them have ever become less energetic, less workaholics because of the capital gains rate at 25%. >> or 39.6%. >> hey, can i ask you about that, because -- help me understand this. we have a lot of people talking about how we need to 0 raise more taxes. >> sure. >> and i hear -- i hear the president talking about moving the top tax rate up to 39.6%. and i'm just wondering, is that as equitable an approach when a lot of really rich guys and women look at that 39.6%? right now i'm never going to pay that. >> yeah. >> would it be better to raise the capital-gains tax and say 15 to 20 or 15 to 25 percent would that help with income disparity a bit more? >> well, that's why i suggest a minimum tax, because you're absolutely right. of the 400 highest incomes in 2009, which average $200 million apiece, a quarter of the people paid at a rate under you 15%. so the only way to get it back is to have a minimum tax. >> how many of those would you bet, if you had to make a bet, paid 39.6%?
